Do you have questions about your situation and your options for immigration status? Click on the link below to talk with lawyer Lauren Ransford about your case.


FAMILY-BASED IMMIGRATION – Helping U.S. citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents (green card holders) sponsor relatives to live and work in the United States.

CITIZENSHIP AND NATURALIZATION – Helping Lawful Permanent Residents (green card holders) become United States citizens.

VISAS FOR VICTIMS OF CRIME – Helping victims of crime gain lawful status in the United states.

PENDING CRIMINAL CHARGES OR PAST CONVICTIONS – Consulting with criminal defense lawyers on clients’ behalf, so that pending criminal charges have the least possible impact on immigration status. Analyzing past convictions to understand their potential effect on immigration status.


A consultation is a 60-minute one-on-one confidential discussion with me about your immigration situation.

The discussion will include the options for your case, the proposed attorney fees and other costs, any additional research needed to fully advise you about your case, and potential risks and challenges.

After the consultation, if you want to move forward and we decide to take your case, I will send you a proposed contract with details about the representation, the fees and costs and the payment schedule. Having a consultation does not create an attorney-client relationship, which only happens when we sign a written contract.

Consultations are by Zoom or telephone so that consultees do not have to travel and to reduce risks due to COVID.

Consultations are at a flat fee of $200 – payment is due in full before the consultation. The consultation fee can be paid by credit card, Zelle or personal check.

To schedule a consultation, please click this link. This will take you to a calendar page where you can request an appointment. Once the appointment is scheduled, our office will email you a short intake form to complete online or on a smartphone, and a Zoom link with payment information.

Alternatively, you can fill out the form in the Contact Me section below, and click Submit, and I will contact you by phone or email.
